It’s the most wonderful time of the year! Holiday spirit abounds, and everyone feels a little kinder and more giving – even your boss. Businesses who want to spread holiday cheer may reward employees for their hard work throughout the year in the form of year-end bonuses. That could be just the thing you need to kick off some great home improvement projects.

Add an Extra Room

Adding on to your house can be a great way to boost its value and the enjoyment you get out of your home. There are lots of different things you could turn that room into. You could make it your own personal library to house a growing book collection. If you host guests overnight, it could make a great guest room. It could be a great place to work from home or spend time on hobbies. Or you could bask in the benefits of natural light by turning it into a sunroom. Just remember that you’ll likely need to get permits before adding an extra room onto your home.

Create an Entertainment Center

Most of us have spent a lot more time at home this year, making it necessary to find new ways to entertain ourselves. One of the myriad of possibilities of home improvements you could make is to create an entertainment center either inside or outside your home. Indoor centers often feature a variety of electronic entertainment options, from gaming systems to extensive movie collections. Outdoor entertainment centers can still feature such options, though extra care should be taken to shelter electronics from the elements. You could also add an outdoor cooking station to make entertaining easier. No outdoor cooking station can be complete without a bar to go along with it. Make sure your cooking station is equipped with all the things you’ll need to whip up a killer dining experience.

Upgrade Your Bathroom

Spending time in the bathroom is an inevitability. You might as well make it as enjoyable as possible. Consider using a Christmas bonus to upgrade your bathroom. You could swap out existing countertops for a different high quality countertop material, redo your bathroom’s interior design, change up the lighting, or replace your tub or shower unit.

There are tons of things you could do with the extra cash you get as a part of a holiday bonus. Why not do something nice for yourself and everyone in your household by using it to fund some great home improvement projects? You could add an extra room, create your own entertainment center, or upgrade your bathroom. The possibilities are only limited by your own creativity.
